Abstract

We describe a classroom activity in which students use M&M candies to simulate death and immigration. Students build a mathematical model, collect data, estimate parameters, and compare their model prediction with their actual data.

There is a video of one run of the main simulation in this Modeling Scenario on YouTube.
